Halak Starts in Rask’s Place
Backup goalie Jaroslav Halak will start in Rask’s place. Halak is 35-years-old and played in 31 games this season. He is a capable backup as he won a share of the Williams M. Jennings trophy. This is an award for the team with the fewest goals scored against their goaltenders.
